Hayato UwaiCorrespondent IJune 23, 2009

It's looking like Ichiro will go to his ninth All-Star game in his major league career.

With less than 10 days left to vote, Ichiro is now in second place for American League outfielders, just ahead of Texas' Josh Hamilton. Ichiro's teammate, Ken Griffey Jr., dropped to eighth place, trailing the third place Hamilton by 375,628 votes, so he can still bounce back.

Boston's Jason Bay is leading the outfield voting with 2,077,504 votes, followed by Ichiro with 1,455,266 votes.

Here are the leaders at each position:

C Joe Mauer (Minnesota), 1B Mark Teixeira (New York), 2B Ian Kinsler (Texas), 3B Evan Longoria (Tampa Bay), SS Derek Jeter (New York), OF Jason Bay (Boston), Ichiro Suzuki (Seattle), Josh Hamilton (Texas).

You can vote until July 2, at 11:59 PM EST, so let's vote and help Ichiro and Griffey play on the All-Star team!
